The family of actor Jeremy Renner has offered an optimistic update on his critical injury.

We can confirm that Jeremy has suffered blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries and has undergone surgery today, January 2nd 2023. He has returned from surgery and remains in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition. Jeremy’s family would like to express their gratitude to the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, Truckee Meadows Fire and Rescue, Washoe County Sheriff, Reno City Mayor Hillary Schieve and the Carano and Murdock families.

Everything We Know About Renner’s Injury
On January 1, it was announced by Renner’s representatives that he had suffered severe injuries after a “weather related incident while plowing snow” in Washoe Country, Nevada, where he has resided for several years. It was later reported that according to witnesses, Renner was plowing snow near his home when the Snowcat plow he was operating rolled over and ran over his leg. A neighbor, who is a doctor, treated Renner on the scene until paramedics could arrive. Renner was then transported to a local area hospital via helicopter, where he underwent intensive surgery.
Police have reportedly treated the area as a crime scene and have impounded the Snowcat, as the plow should have had safety measures on it to prevent an incident like this from happening. While Renner is still in critical condition, his family’s statement seems optimistic, as he is still stable after his surgery. More details are likely to be released as events develop, including the state of Renner’s health, and the findings of the police related to the Snowcat.
